Overview

The museum introduces, in a very interactive fashion, a unique collection which brings one to the heart of the Huron-Wendat culture, explores themes from the historical territories and recalls native memories and knowledge. The museum offers more than a simple visit; it introduces a bona fide cultural voyage. Apart from all the collections, one can find, in close proximity to a restores brook, outdoor theme gardens where one may discover the beauty and power of the medicinal plants.

I loved the museum it had so many interresting dispalys and the amount of information about the Huron tribe was amazing. Great visit. The Longhouse was also interesting.

Try going into the new Museum of the American Indian in DC and asking where the scalp room is. They don't acknowledge that such barbarities went on at all either on the part of locals and interlopers. Barbarous cruelties were practised by all in the...More

In the village of amerindians Wendake, the hotel has an exquisite design renewing the traditional amerindian style. The rooms are super neat, the 5-7 apero served outside with an authentic show, the restaurant serving delicious foods and drinks.

The museum contains a vast array of traditional things from the Huron. I only went through it quickly. But, the hotel that it attaches too is designed like a long house of the ancestors. There is also a replicated Long house that you can go...More

A well thought out tour with many reference points to view. Very unexpected on how much knowledge I would gain. Highly recommended for any historian.

This was our third visit to Quebec to visit relatives, but our first trip to the Wendat village. This is not where they once had their camp, it is a re-enactment in the middle of tribal lands. It was very interesting. Don't miss it if...More

Took the long tour (2,5 hours) with the museum, longhouse, church, commander's house and falls. It's definitely worth it! We learnt so much about the natives, their way of life, their beliefs, their history, and their contemporary rights within Canada. The tour was guided by...More

A must-see! We know so little of First Nations' history. It is being told here in a very warm and inspiring way by natives. The visit of the long house is particularly enlighting.
